  3. Allow exported config files to use password saved in keychain

    When launching a remote desktop session from the client that session can utilize the password saved in the keychain. When a profile is exported and launched the session cannot utilize the saved password. I would like to see the saved profile be able to use the same password stored in the keychain.

  7. Multiple Monitors from host mapped to virtual desktops (spaces)

    When a host system is running multiple monitors it would be nice to have the option to map multiple monitors to virtual desktops (spaces) on the connecting system.

  8. Touchbar support for new MBP!

    Some ideas for TouchBar in the new MBP:
    * middle area should have previews of all open desktops, with ability to swipe through each open desktop
    * buttons to toggle full screen, to open a new session (tabbed)
    * button to expand all open sessions to individual mission control spaces, and then to toggle collapse back to a single space with tabs

  9. Export or sync your list with another computer

    Ability to sync the list of remote connections to another computer, via sync (dropbox style) or via export. With export you would export the list or some portion of the list, be asked for a password (to protect the export file), Then, using the password, import the list into another copy of Remote DeskTop.

  10. Add selection of the Colors (display quality) to enable slow speed networks

    Allow the display quality to be lowered (the in-store app goes down from 32 bit to 8 bit) to speed up on slow connections.

  11. group

    Map CMD+Q & CMD+W in OSX to Quit windows app and close window inside remote session instead of quitting / closing RDP window. Maybe an option.

  12. Quick connect on main screen and Cmd+A translation

    The quick connect is a great addition to the beta app, however once you get past that initial screen there doesn't really seem to be a way back to it. Quick connect should be part of the main window (button at the top & keyboard shortcut).

    Also, LOVE the cmd+c/v/x translation, the addition of cmd+a translating to ctrl+a would be great. I often find myself selecting all text in a window, copying it, and then pasting that in another app.

  13. Enable Remote App support

    Enable "Remote App" support again.
    The current Remote Desktop supports the execution of Remote Apps. In the Beta version, a full desktop is opened, when executing a Remote-App RDP file.
    Please fix this

  14. create key map for windows application

    Many windows applications or developers use "ctrl+Break" key shortcut, but OS X keyboard don't have "Break" key. Please provide a way to map this key shortcut to any mac keys, for example cmd+z... or another keys...

  15. Allow right-click to be sent via control-shift-click

    Please allow right-clicks to be sent to the remote Windows session by pressing control and shift whilst (single) clicking. CoRD allows for this and it is very useful.

  16. Right click dock icon to connect to favourites without invoking Connection Centre

    Allow marking certain connections as Favourites, and then list them when Right Clicking on the dock icon (preferably in the same group as View Connection Centre) so we can get to the RDP session in 2 clicks regardless of what the current foreground app is.

  18. Set default connection

    I'd like to be able to set one of the remote connections as default.
    Then after launching the RDP client I'd like to chose only "Start" to initiate that default connection - e.g. not having to select it first.
    Also pressing Enter just after launching the RDP client could to the same.

  19. [Beta App] Allow Mac to sleep

    Remote Desktop for Mac is the only app I have that is listed as 'Preventing Sleep = Yes' in Activity Monitor. This is a real pain as it permanently prevents the Mac from sleeping which is a fantastically wasteful energy drain. Please can you at least introduce an option to automatically stop Remote Desktop from preventing sleep without having to manually quit the application. This would be very much appreciated and probably save $$$ in electricity bills globally.

    (Understand that some users might want to check an option to prevent sleep to prevent sessions being disconnected...)

  20. credential sharing and credential delegation

    when using RD client on apple devices (iPhone, ipad, mac) two authentications are being sent: one for authentication to the RD gateway and another for the remote device. With native windows RDC, this is accomplished in one authentication attempt. This is causing an issue with my multi factor software (Duo Security) and users having to approve login twice from ios devices.
